With three of us leaving in just 5 days, we are busy packing and preparing for whatever mother nature will throw at us.
The monsoon season has just ended, so we are hoping for clear skies and not too much snow for our trip. Temperatures range from a high of around 30c in Kathmandu, to as low as -25c near the summit, which means layered clothing will be important all the way up the valley. Up until the last couple of days we will be hiking, which means little to no snow (hopefully), and no technical climbing gear. After that, things get a bit more tricky...
We will turn on our spot on Saturday morning, so you can see our progress at our various stops along the way - the first group gets into Kathmandu on Monday morning (Canadian Thanksgiving). Time change is 10:45 minutes (yes, that is correct) ahead.
Now back to work - our next post will be when we are on the way!
